A Saturday evening well spent- Split movie review.

Hey guys! What? I’m still alive! Who said I’m dead!? LIES!

I know, I know! I’ve been a bit caught up with work and stuff, so its been really hard to write to all you awesomely patient people but here I am! Anyway, so I made a vague plan with Anish, a really close friend(He is an ace manipulator) to see this movie under the influence of butter chicken and before you know it, the dude has already booked the tickets and is now sitting on my chest waking me from a deep sleep, shaking me like I was some enchanted princess! Anyways, I left the comfort of my bed and put on the first hoodie and cargo shorts I found(So much for being a fashion blogger, eh?) and was on my way. Before we knew it we were at the ticket counter where the lady goes very loudly  ”I NEED TO SEE I.D, PLEASE?” to  Anish who happens to be a baby face . Someone needs to teach these people how to not shout into these mic things! I then proceed to show her my I.D and she goes even more vocally ” ITS OK SIR! I DON’T NEED TO SEE YOURS!”. I burst out laughing so much at this point!

The movie began pretty well, It follows a man called Kevin Wendell Grub who has 23 personalities trapped in his bodies! Kinda like Satoshi does, you say? Anyways, I won’t delve into it too much because this is a must watch movie and I hate those people who give out spoilers.  So here goes-

Overview and story line( Chill bro, I’m not saying much!)

The movie began with a group of three girls being kidnapped and later awaken in a clean but mildly claustrophobic. The man(James McAvoy) enters in and creates somewhat of a scene with the girls and later exits. The girls after a while hear a woman talking outside the door and start shouting for help. But shit hits the fan when they realize that its the same man aka Kevin who is dressed as a woman. Late on in the movie, you come to realize that there are 23 personalities and the entire move revolves on the 24th entity living within him, the Beast!

Acting

I’m my honest opinion, I think the acting was pretty good. They had a clear idea of what the were suppose to be doing and didn’t goof up and look like a bunch of clueless teenagers(looking at you Scream). The movie was overall a really great movie due to the actors and how well they did their job.

Directing

Bro, I want to marry this M. Night. Shyamalan! This is probably one of his biggest highlights in his entire film career and this looks like just the start form him. He literally probably could be compared to Steven Spielberg but I seriously think Shyamalan is amazing in his own unique and beautiful way that Mr. Spielberg in all his glorious E.T wonder could not even touch!

Music and sound effects(Literally the bloody highlight of this movie!)

There were no crazy BOOMS or SCREEEEAACH type sounds made in most generic horror films. I was amazed by how beautiful and somewhat soothing the music could be considering a crazy 24 in 1 serial killer is after you. Overall the music and sound effects were amazing and I would give it a 10/10 if it weren’t a rating of 5.

 

Should or shouldn’t watch?

Girlbros and Bros, I present to you the move of the year! This movie has been one of the best thriller/horror films ever written. I could not sleep that night because I was afraid of the beast! Mind it, This movie doesn’t have any of the cheap shots found in most movies today(looking at you Annabelle, Ok, Not… please don’t haunt me). This is a movie I am so grateful to have seen and would recommend it to you guys with a heart filled with joy. In other words, Please go and watch it!

 

P.S- This movie has also taught me not to make fun of people living with MPD, not that I ever did make fun of them but now its a definite no when it comes to that!

 

I hope you guys enjoyed the review! Leave a comment below and tell me what you guys think. You can follow me on Instagram in case if you think I’m dead or something and need to check on me. Link is here- http://bit.ly/2lINOpu

Birthday gift by Mom- The Phillips pro skin advance trimmer

I got impatient and opened it OK!

 

So, It was my birthday on the 9th of February and yes, I had a brilliant time. Thanks to all you people out there who made this day so special and for those of you who didn’t, well, I didn’t have to share my cake with you, Booya!

Anyways, My mom often refers to me as the goat man, not because I am a huge fan of spinach and definitely not because I sometimes kick people(by accident…ish) but more because I have a very unkempt beard. So no surprise when I woke up one morning to find a Facial hair trimmer almost thrown towards me in desperation.

The company promises a few basic but very important things that are mentioned below-

  • Skin-friendly- This is something that anyone who has used a bad trimmer will know that it can go from the harmless thought of shaving to rubbing a cactus with waxing strips on your face.
  • Lock-in lengths- It has a 10 length setting guard that can trim 1mm to 10mm. This is perfect for a range of styles that can turn you from beast to beauty.
  • Ergonomic design- This is so important if you struggle every morning trying to get ready and need a quick fix.
  • Easy to clean- Because anyone who actually buys a trimmer actually has bucket load of time to spend cleaning the machine, right? (inserted sarcasm).

Finally opening it!

Upon unpacking it, I first notice that it was compact and very portable. This is normally something I look for in a product because I like to look a tad bit presentable while on the go. The next thing I noticed was the little brush that is used to get all the stray  hair out from the blades, this will ensure your machine is always clean. Then was the moment of truth! Will Phillips live up to its name or did they trim away my mums expectations of how amazing Phillips has been to us through the years (pointless exaggeration much? I am that pumped!). The promise about it being ergonomic was fulfilled as soon as I touched it. It was easy to hold and could easily be carried while travelling without any problems.

 

In terms of skin friendly, I’d give it a 8/10 because while mostly it was decent, it would pull my hair but then again I do have hair that has the thickness of a steel wire, so I forgive you ok, Phillips? It was easy to adjust the length that I wanted and I ended up going with a 6mm because I felt that I wanted to keep my beard while also being able to manage it easily.

It kept to its promise of  being easy to clean and maintain. This is of serious importance to me, especially since I literally hate cleaning anything and also because I don’t like to waste too much time in the morning trying to get every hair out of the trimmer. The mini brush will help get those hairs that get stuck in corners and keep your machine squeaky clean.
